This has become a go-to jacket pattern for me. This is one of my latest projects- Simplicity 2446 (#S2446 Amazing Fit series). The pattern is fantastic. I think the fit works well. I will lengthen the jacket on the next make. I also plan to make this in several fabrics that will let me have some separates in jackets (Boucle, wool, etc).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Princess seams--they are my favorite. I also appreciated the 1-inch seam allowances. The pattern also has alternate pieces for different bra cup sizes. The fit is "Amazing Fit" series.
It's an eggplant wool blend. I love the fabric because it has a weave that looks like a pique. .
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. The "Amazing Fit" series is great and offers alternate bra cup sizes. That's why I chose it. The fit really is great.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I plan to make several versions of this. On a recent FaceBook post, someone recommended I also try squaring off the front curves.
Good staple jacket as a wardrobe builder.
